Bookstagram: a Nice and Easier Place to Find Another Bookworm

Bookstagramnouna nice placeto find anotherbookwormDo you know what?

I always thought Goodreads is good place to find another bookworm. Now my opinion have changed.

Since joining bookstagram community in August through #AusYAChallenge ( Bookstagram challenge host by my fav book blogger Cait @paperfury, Emily @thelooneytuney and Kelly @divabooknerd.).


My instagram followers now reach 900 (from 700) but my following also grew (it reach 700 from 600) in a month. I never knew I could find lots of bookworm so much and this fast.  I consider finding 200 bookworms in a month are many and fast since I am introvert and it takes me a lot of time to get along with other people.

Bookstragam also introduced me to the joy of taking picture of books. I never knew taking pictures of books could be so much fun.  I have taken picture of book on my Instagram but the purpose are for spread the news about my new blog post and for say thanks to publisher or anyone who give me free copy of book.

I also learn that Instagram is good place to display your book collection and take peek to other people book collection. The friendship blooms when you find another bookworm who read the same book or has the same opinion about book and when both of you think each other’s pictures of book are interesting.

The people on bookstagram community are very nice. They are so welcoming and so many of them doing like for like ( If you like their pic, some of them will like your pic, too) πŸ˜€ Some people also doing follow for follow and shoutout for shoutout πŸ˜€  ( I am not doing follow for follow,  but I am doing like for like) 

I think I fall in love with bookstagram β€ I just found another hobby! πŸ˜€  It does not mean I prefer Instagram over goodreads. I still love goodreads. It means my love grew bigger. πŸ’•πŸ’• I used to love goodreads and blog  for finding another bookworm. Now Instagram/bookstagram has been added to equitation πŸ˜€

Thanks to #Ausyachallenge I met lots of bookworm from all over the world,especially from Australia.  I had so much fun πŸ˜€ Alhamdulillah πŸ˜€

Do you on bookstagram too? What do you like about bookstagram community? πŸ˜€

  1. Hana, aku suka buku & baca buku, tapi blm pernah ikutan klub2 gitu karena takut ngga bisa keep up XD sekarang susaaah dapetin waktu buat baca buku.. huhuhu


    • Bookstagram bukan klub kok mba πŸ˜€ mungkin lebih tepat disebut komunitas πŸ˜€ Mba sandra tinggal upload foto buku terus pakai hastag #bookstagram πŸ˜€ cek juga foto yang lain yang pakai hastag #bookstagram terus kenalan πŸ˜€ Semoga bisa dapet waktu buat baca buku ya mba sandra πŸ˜€


  2. Hanaa seru banget yah ikutan bookstagram. Jadi pengen deh hehehehe.
    Btw dulu pas SMA smp awal kuliah aku sempet ikutan klub pecinta novel teenlit sama metropop di fb hehehe. Kalo skrg beli bukunya pas penulis favorit nerbitin buku kaya ika natassa sama nina ardianti. Selebihnya aku beli buku kalo pas lagi lewat gramed dan ada sale wkwkwkwk *anaknyademendiskonan*

    • Your welcome Cait πŸ˜€ The pleasure is mine πŸ™‚ Totally agree about drool over gorgeous photos of books! Maybe I should edit this post and add them to the list πŸ™‚ Thanks for the inspiration, Cait πŸ™‚


  5. Wow Hana, that’s absolutely HUGE! 200 followers in a single month is incredible but it’s no wonder with your gorgeous photos. I only joined Instagram this year and absolutely love it too. I don’t put that much thought into my photos though, I just can’t find the time or have the ability to set up scenes like a lot of users, but it’s a brilliant way to connect to other bookworms and I love the challenges too ❀
